Crawley vs Bradford Prediction

The Crawley faithful were left frustrated yet again after their squad managed no more than a 1-1 draw against Forest Green at home. Despite initially taking the lead through Beryly Lubala in the opening forty-five minutes, a bizarre own goal from Jordan Tunnicliffe, post the restart, ensured their counterparts a share of the spoils.

The hosts have now been held to a draw in each of their past three games, and have come away with the win just once in their previous ten.

Meanwhile, Bradford will be making the trip to Broadfield Stadium on the back of a 1-1 draw against league leaders Swindon on the road. Impressively, the guests are unbeaten in their past eight matchups and have not been at the losing end since late November.

It is also worth mentioning that the visiting contingent have been resilient in their recent outings. They have admitted defeat in just one of their previous eight trips on the road in all competitions.

To make matters worse for the hosts, it was Bradford who secured the bragging rights in their last clash with each other at this venue. That too, by a thumping 3-1 scorecard.

Given that the reverse fixture also saw them breeze past the hosts with two unanswered goals to their name, a defeat is certainly looming large for Crawley this weekend.

However, five of the past seven trips on the road for Bradford have finished in a tie. Hence, it is too soon to call a clear winner in this one. As such, a double chance is sizing up to be the safest punt.

Furthermore, the guests have been tough to breach, even in their outings. They have conceded just twelve goals so far, which is the fourth-least by any side on the road.

On the other hand, Crawley have kept a clean sheet in two of their past three games here. With both teams showing promise in their respective defensive third’s, rule out any possibilities of a high scoring affair unfolding this Saturday.
